The Wildcats Soccer Team has a big district match Tuesday (March 9) with Pine Tree at Gerald Prim Stadium and it’s Senior Night. There will be a JV contest beginning at 5:30 p.m. Then after recognition of the Wildcats’ seniors, the varsity match is set to begin at around 7:15 p.m.

The Wildcats enter the game with a 5-5 record in district play. They are 14-9-1 for the season. The Wildcats have won their last two games.

When the two teams played in the first half at Pine Tree back on February 12, the Pirates scored a goal in overtime to defeat the Wildcats, 2-1. KSST will bring you the Wildcats and Pine Tree live from the Prim.

The broadcast will feature streaming video and audio. The game will also be videotaped for replay at a later date on Channel 18 on Suddenlink Cable.

The Lady Cats Soccer Team travels to Pine Tree for a big district match. There will be a JV contest at 5:30 p.m. with the varsity match to follow at around 7:15 p.m. The Lady Cats are 6-4 in district play but one of the wins came in a shootout. The Lady Cats’ season record is 11-8-4. The Lady Cats have won three matches in a row. During the first half of district play back on February 12, the Lady Pirates won 5-0 at Gerald Prim Stadium.

The Wildcats Baseball Team only had a single scrimmage before this season. The other three were lost to the weather. Therefore Wildcats Coach Jerrod Hammack has had to get his team to improve while playing games at the same time. It’s been a tough season so far as the Wildcats have compiled a 1-8 record in two tournaments.

Ready or not the Wildcats have a district game on the schedule on this Tuesday game day. Longview is coming to Wildcat Park. There will be a JV game at 4 P.M. The varsity contest follows at around 7 P.M.

The Wildcats have had a few well pitched games but right now Wildcats hitters appear to be a bit ahead of Wildcats’ pitchers. This is the second year in a row where a district game is occurring so early that it takes place before the Wildcats last tournament.

Last year the Wildcats defeated Royse City in a district game before playing in a Hallsville tournament later in the week. The Wildcats return to that Hallsville tournament later this week.


Finally the Lady Cats Softball Team also opens district play in a tough place indeed, at Hallsville. There will be a JV game at 5 p.m. The varsity game begins at 6:30 p.m. The Lady Cats are off to a fast start. They are 9-2 after a season opener and two tournaments.

KSST’s sister station, KRVA-FM, at 107.1, will have the radio broadcast of the Lady Cats and Lady Bobcats from Hallsville with Ross Labenske calling the game.

KSST is proud to be the official Wildcat and Lady Cat Station. We broadcast Sulphur Springs ISD games year round live on radio. When allowed, we also broadcast games via our YouTube channel.
